Time to step up the quality of training and attention to who is conducting the training. Only trained and actual instructors that have actually conducted the work physically should be the ones who instruct other workers.

We are saddened by these fatalities, our deepest condolences to these workers families on the loss of their family, friend, colleagues.

We must demand these changes to take place in order to ensure these events do not happen again.
